    Small cut or carpet burn on face?

    Hey everyone! During our morning wipe I noticed Ciri had a small cut or carpet burn on her face. Does anyone have any suggestions for care? I cleaned it with a wet wipe, but does anyone have any other suggestions for ensuring it doesn’t get infected? I don’t think it warrants a vet visit, but...

    Diarrhea ... every 3rd or 4th poop!

    Ciri’s First Night Home

    Hello everyone, Brought home my little one yesterday and she was a true dream until bedtime. The breeder highly recommended confining her to a small room to start when we are not home or at night for her safety. Well little Miss Ciri did NOT agree. She cried for 15 mins, then fell asleep.

    Royal Canin

    Hello, My breeder uses Royal Canin kitten but having done my research, Royal Canin isn’t really the best quality of food out there. I already know I will be using Acana First Feast for the dry, but in terms of a kitten wet food what are everyone’s thoughts on Tiki cat kitten food? Has anyone...
